There was a good article on this in AutoItalia a couple of months ago...............Apparently would have given the Integrale a run for the money?!

Didn't the Q4 have 190bhp. I was lead to believe the GTA was due to have a **** of a lot more. But the V6 didn't fit the Lancia drive train and tuning the GTA would reduce the reliability (Yes Alfa said that).
With the Integrale engine easily capable of 300bhp I would have thought that would have made the GTA go as awesome as it looks!

I had a 155 Silverstone back in the day.

Absolutely loved it. It was underpowered but was an 8-valve so quite good torque.

Made a great sound and yes I thought I was Gabrielle Tarquini!!

I had a wide body 2 litre twin spark and loved it....
The company I worked for had one as a pool car (the marketing man left and his car stayed) in the late ‘90s. I nicked it as often as I could!

Does make me wonder why they couldn't adapt the mechanicals from the 164 Q4?
